The latest travel advisory issued by the embassy on July 19 asks its citizens to ‘reconsider’ travelling to India. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has issued a Level 3 Travel Health Notice for India, which is a step lower from the highest Level 4, that says ‘Do not travel’.

“Your risk of contracting COVID-19 and developing severe symptoms may be lower if you are fully vaccinated with an FDA authorized vaccine. Before planning any international travel, please review the CDC's specific recommendations for vaccinated and unvaccinated travelers “, the advisory states.
